Left parities would play an important role in cobbling an "alternate secular govt" at Centre, West Bengal CM said.

West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee said on Thursday that Left parties would play an important role to cobble together the "alternative secular" government at the Centre.

Bhattacharjee said "neither the BJP-led alliance nor the Congress will get a majority. In that scenario our task will be to see that secular and left forces come together and form an alternative government."

He said it was true that a pre-poll alliance of Left and secular parties could not be formed although initiatives had been taken in some states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Maharastra which were successful.

"After the Lok Sabha election, the situation will be clear. In the past too, it was possible to come to a post-poll alliance and form the government at the Centre. We will try to do it again this time. That will be the true alternative to BJP and Congress," Bhattacharjee said in an interview to CPI(M) party mouthpiece 'Ganashakti' on Thursday.
